I read on Pipin's site that he is planning another No-Limits record attempt on the 12 August in Italy, to coincide with the 2nd aniversary of Audrey's death.

Will be attempting to surpass the 600' mark. I realise that the 'purists' are now only concerned with CW, etc etc, but I am a freelance sports presenter on radio, and I cannot over-emphasize the importance of these No-Limit attempts for giving freediving coverage.

As much as I try to explain and convince the media of the merits of CW and the current competitions, they only want to know "how deep?" on a single breath. Sleds or no sleds. Mechanically aided or not. Lift baloons or not...it does'nt matter. The media want to know..."how deep on a single breath?". And 180 meters is a bigger story than 106 metes. Sad but true.

On a personal note, it was the Big Blue that attracted me to freediving, and No-Limits record attempts will always tug on my heartstrings. And in my opinion, anyone who goes past 170 meters on a lungfull of air gets a big 'respect' from me.

Good luck to Pipin.
